you a tweet this morning. it says "this wasn't a debate so much as mitt romney just took obama for a cross-country drive strapped to the roof of his car." so, what is the spin that the white house is putting on what happened to the president last night to explain it? >> well, the white house knows that the president was on the low end of an energetic scale, and they're calling that presidential and slightly deferential, but that surprised a lot of us who were expecting at least part of the president's performance to reflect that which his campaign has said about governor romney. there are at least ten lives of attack that the president left off the table completely -- nothing about china, outsourcing, bain capital, 47%, exotic offshore business or tax shelter arrangements, all kinds of things that the campaign has been pounding mitt romney on that the president did not bring up himself, and several democrats i talked to last night who are not on the obama payroll said the president's demeanor left the country with the impression that mitt romney is an acceptable alternative, whom the

obama campaign. good morning, robert. >> good morning, guys. how are you >> i also want to give you and opportunity to respond to that tape that was aired by fox the president talking about what happened in new orleans. does the president believe the bush administration did not help the victims of hurricane katrina because of their race? >> well, as you said, the president said that the incompetence that surrounded the federal government's response to katrina in 2005 was colorblind. what the president is talking about in that tape is the law that governs disaster assistance requires a 10% match for community to qualify for disaster assistance. we waived it for hurricane andrew and waived it nor new york city in 9/11 and barack obama and members of the mississippi and louisiana delegations all believed we should also waive it for new orleans. >> so you're not worried about it? >> look, if the republicans want to defend the bush administration's response to katrina, i'm sure the president would give them his time during the debate to do that. but, look, i have to say i'm a little amaz

is in henderson, covering the obama campaign. good morning. >> reporter: norah, good morning. while the president does his homework, the obama campaign team is working hard itself to trying to lower expectations for the president's performance. white house press corps was chuckling yesterday when they tried to argue that the president's tendency toward answers may be a liability in a debate where candidates are expected to be succinct. they're also arguing that the president hasn't had as much time to prepare for this debate as governor romney. we don't know exactly how much less time he has had, because the campaign doesn't tell us how much time he spends practicing. they like us to think it is very little time, indeed. what we do know is that he is holed up at a westin hotel outside of las vegas with his top aides and with massachusetts senator john kerry, playing romney in mock debates. kerry knows romney well. they are long-time massachusetts politicians and, of course, kerry knows his way around a presidential debate because he went up against george w. bush in 2004. the reason
